You Down With DCP's?

   I'm home from Rome! The hubs and I had a wonderful time walking around the city and enjoying all the sites. Everywhere we went it was like we had to just stand there for a few minutes and absorb it all. To be in the Roman Coloseum where the Emperor Nero once stood and where gladiator games and more took place...it was simply amazing.

   Something that wasn't so amazing about Rome...DROP CROTCH PANTS! Since I've lived in Italy for 3 years I don't know if this trend really made it into the spotlight in the states, but this is one trend that I didn't try and I probably never will. Everywhere I looked in Rome there were drop crotch pants, we'll call them DCP's. They were on young people, old people, men, women, children....all around.


Pants



Yes, not the kind that are just a little baggy, but the whole crotch is just disconnecting itself like it's trying to run away. I'm sure there is someone out there who can pull these off but I look ridiculous in DCP's. It's obvious they weren't made to flatter any part of the body. 

American Apparel pants


   Even though I've now seen my share of baggy crotches in Rome, these women do have some great shoes. I spotted a few, completely genuine, Christian Louboutins, Pradas, Miu Miu's and more. I would sit down and "shoe watch" as everyone passed by and now want to kick myself for not taking pictures. 

   I will probably break up my Rome pics for you all into a few separate posts because there is just so much to show and tell. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

E.L.F. Cosmetic Brushes...Fave or Fail?

Admittedly I've been using the same Mary Kay makeup brushes for a while now, along with a few other random brands thrown in. I was just satisfied with my MK brushes because they washed well and have help up for a really long time. But it was definitely time for a whole new set and I had trouble making up my mind on which makeup brushes to try. At first my plan was to snag a few from different companies to see what I liked best, but then E.L.F. Cosmetics had a 50% off sale with free shipping over $35. Naturally I had to give it a shot since I was getting so much bang for my buck. I already knew that I wasn't too fond of their cheaper $1 brushes so I opted for the Studio Line which ranges from $3-$10 and I'd heard great reviews. All together I got 15 brushes (1 didn't make it to the picture) for only $37, definitely a steal! Keep reading to find out if it was worth it. 
















 I am extremely pleased with these E.L.F makeup brushes. The only one that I'm not too fond of woul…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.


Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...



It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…
